Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Not sure what you mean by "random output," but note that this program will print the character codes of the characters you type in -- not the interpretation of those codes as textual integers. The number "48" is the character code for 0; 49 is 1; etc.

The proper way to write your program is to read Strings, then use the static Integer.parseInt() method to interpret those strings. See Sun's I/O tutorial at http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/essential/io/index.html .
